Day 1
Gdansk & WWII | Gdansk & WWII

This morning your guide will meet you just outside your cruise ship for the journey to Gdansk (some ships dock in Gdansk, others dock in Gdynia, about 45 minutes away).

Begin with an exploration of Gdansk on foot. Your guide will take you on Gdansk’s Royal Route. Around every corner of Old Town you’ll find an important building or historic monument and your guide will show you the most important of them. You can also step inside St. Mary’s Church, founded in 1343, and one of the largest churches in Europe and is best known for its extraordinary Gothic sculpture. At the picturesque Motlawa River bank you will see the massive, 15th century Old Crane, which is now a museum containing a wooden elevator and granaries used at the port during its heyday.

Afterward head to Oliwa. This is a complex of Cistercian abbey buildings and the highlight is the cathedral. It’s built in the Romanesque and Gothic styles and is best known for its organ, which includes moving angels, stars and the sun. Today there is an organ concert at noon and you can attend.

Your day will end at the fantastic WWII Museum and you will leave your guide at this time. September 1, 1939 was the date that WWII began, and it started right here with shots fired over Westerplatte. This massive museum is divided into three areas – past, present and future. You’ll have a timed entrance ticket today and the use of an audio guide, if you like. With even a casual interest in WWII, you’ll be hard pressed to see everything in two hours here. There are over 2,000 exhibits from the road to war to effects of the war post-1945.

Note: This excursion cannot take place on a Monday
